Two TBC Master Class sessions conducted by Rockpike Solutions that you can sign up for where they will cover the different toolboxes in detail, provide you with example data and walk you through a series of training exercises to familiarize yourself with the possibilities and productivity / flexibility increases available.
These classes are available on a first come first served basis with attendance limited to 150 people. The classes will provide example data, and will be led by Alan Sharp who you may have met through the Trimble or Rockpile Solutions Community pages.
The 4 hour class spread over 2 days is $100 per attendee. The class fee is refundable against a purchase of the RPS All Tools Toolbox if ordered within 30 days of the class.
Class Registraon and Purchasing
To register for the class please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your Purchase Order for $100 / person. We are waiting for our Training Web Page to go live through which you will be able to order and pay for the classes offered, however in the interim I will register you manually and will request that you pay through the Rockpile Solutions website (www.RockpileSolutions.com) prior to the class (all being well).
- Alan Sharp
Partner / Marketing Director at Rockpile Solutions LLCI graduated from Nottingham University with a BSc in Geology followed by an MSc in Engineering Surveying. On graduating I joined Geotronics the manufacturers of Geodimeter Total Stations (now a Trimble Company). I held roles in Europe with Geotronics and later Spectra Physics / Spectra Precision in Sales, Sales Management and acted as the Managing Director for Spectra Precison at the merger of Geotronics and Spectra Physics Laserplane. Later I headed up the European efforts with the Terramodel software on the acquisition of Plus 3 Software and included the pioneering of the 3D Machine Control business with the BladePro 3D system which was based on the Terramodel ToolPak engine. In 2000 when Spectra Precision was acquired by Trimble, I was asked to move to the US to assist in the integration of the two companies. After 2 years of working in the Geospatial Business I was asked to help develop the rapidly growing Machine Control Business through the establishment of the Site Positioning portfolio and the formation of the new Heavy Highway Division. More recently I have worked on the CEC Software business, developing construction focused software and developing the global market. In 2020 I decided to start my own business with two partners, Peter Kistler (an ex TBC Software Developer) and Bill Quintrell (Developed the TCC Platform for Trimble and assisted in many software projects including the Beijing New Airport). The new company - Rockpile Solutions LLC based in Colorado is focused on three main areas and has been Authorized by Trimble to be a Trimble Consulting Partner and Trimble Development Partner as well as Certified Trainers for the Trimble Business Center and related software products. Our focus areas are 1) TML and Software Extensions for the TBC Software Platform 2) High End Support, Trimble Community Forum Management, Training (including PUG and RUG events) and Consulting Services. 3) Software Development for the Civil Construction Industry It has been quite the ride so far and I love working with Sales, Dealers and Customers on projects in this arena - it is truly a fascinating business.
